Los Angeles police officers sabotaged their voice recorders

Los Angeles police officers tampered with voice recording equipment in dozens of patrol cars in an effort to avoid being monitored while on duty, according to records and interviews.

An inspection by Los Angeles Police Department investigators found about half of the estimated 80 cars in one South L.A. patrol division were missing antennas, which help capture what officers say in the field. The antennas in at least 10 more cars in nearby divisions had also been removed.

Ha ha ha ...even the police

Ha ha ha ...even the police state doesn't like surveillance!

The Penalty

The penalty should be at least as harsh as it would be if a civilian tampered with a cop car's antenna, though I'd make the argument that they should be charged with destruction of evidence from a crime scene too. These guy's forget all too quickly that they're public servants.
